...or is this little alternative universe of ours getting more surreal by the hour? And is it just me, or are you loving it too?

it has been an entertaining day for sure. Ultimately it is why I am here everyday. If it was all hardcore Grateful Dead facts it would get kind of dull after awhile. I know it may sound obvious but its the people that make or on occasion break this place, the band never changes. Today was a make day.

must be nice to be able to lounge in comfort all day, listening to music, chatting with other like-situated slackers, gazing fondly on some lovely grad student, who caters to your every whim, while the rest of us are toiling in the pits & mines

Well its been building up inside of me
For oh I dont know how long
I dont know why
But I keep thinking
Somethings bound to go wrong

But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
And she says dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Everything will turn out alright

Dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Dont worry baby

I guess I shouldve kept my mouth shut
When I started to brag about my car
But I cant back down now
I pushed the other guys too far

She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive
When she says dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Everything will turn out alright

Dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Dont worry baby

She told me baby, when you race today
Just take along my love with you
And if you know how much I loved you
Baby nothing could go wrong with you

Oh what she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Dont worry baby
Everything will turn out alright

Dont worry baby

GoP is possessed of a big stick and delights in employing it to stirring effect. You can handle him without slipping off the smoking jacket.

Yes, all the girls like my big stick--especially when I stir their pots. Do you always wear a smoking jacket when you watch porn?

I'm not sure what any of this means. But I do have to admit that when the mega dramas don't dominate, this place is more entertaining than Flowerhook.

It's amazing how many ways one could interpret the words in those 2 sentences. I for one always enjoy reading your posts... maybe it's due to the fact that hanging around smart people makes me FEEL smarter (insert emoticon here - wink or smile will do).

Seems to me that we have nicely regained our footing in the world of light heartedness and spirited exchanges, both humorous and enlightening at the same time. Haven't had this much fun around these parts in quite some time. To put it more familiar terms, o verbose kilt donning blowhard from the land where bicycles were invented, it's like the sheep have become easier to help over the fence.

Anyway, it's back to being absolutely destroyed by the Dancin>Franklins masterpiece from 11/09/79. This is one that most definitely earned its spot on the Road Trips release.

Yes, yesterday was definitely a good one, sparks flying in all directions. And all the better for having you take part - something you've been depriving us of lately. Does this mean that the workplace security forces have lightened up a little?

I wonder what today will bring ...?

Yes, work has loosened the shackles somewhat in recent days; a fine thing since we've started having fun 'round these parts again. I know that we'll probably get slammed again by someone for not "talking all Dead all of the time", but I'm pretty sure we'll stick to our guns and let these heinous bridge dwelling trolls bluster for awhile, but then be pulled back inexorably into the primordial ooze from whence they came.

Methinks.

(Damn all of you for putting that word into my head. Well, I guess it's better than "anal warts", but not much)

Sorry for going back to dead-related, but I asked that very question here a week or so ago and never got any feedback. Is there anything known about that show at all? Hard to believe its not in the archive since all the shows surrounding it apparently are.

vault not archive

I googled him and found a link to him from another site. Unfortunately it looks like he gave up that domain name so dead end. The link you found said the tape he had was only 25 min in length.

Thanks for the effort.

Hey Elbow - I don't think the lack of response is due to lack of interest. I think it is due to lack of knowledge. IMO, there are really only about 4 or 5 forumites who have a firm grasp on what is and what is not in the vault. Flow is not in the know.

He's been around for a long while, so don't be too hard on the old fart. He's even older than me, which is hard to believe. He takes a lot of abuse (mostly from me), and still comes round, so he's got something going for him. And, he's the architect of an amazing PP collection (10 CDs worth) that some have been fortunate enough to benefit from...

Hello GoP. Ive been reading your old posts recently and have been stuck in '70-'71 since. Great place to be. Just want to say thanks for your sharing here. Your recomendations and "being there" insights have been a boon to my GD experience.

Your morning banter with SDH02 just cracks me up. Priceless.

Capt. and Teniel? Too funny!

Thanks again for sharing

If you hear harmonicas in your attic it's likely Ghost of Pig. In which case I suggest you button-up those box-back nitties(shut your ass) because he's an equal opportunity specter.

It appears you have been warned. I say, "Watch yer cornhole bud!".

Oh yes, first use of 'methinks' on the Grateful Dead forum:
